Designer/Maker: Hardy Wilson
Construction years: 1919-
Physical description: Is a typical example of architect Hardy Wilson's Colonial Georgian revival style of architecture. The house overlooks the grounds of Pymble Ladies College. Externally the house has not been altered except for the addition of a bay window to one of the bedrooms. Internally the hallway has been altered by opening it out at the rear to allow a lighter and more spacious effect with the result that the rear entrance, now the front door to the house, is onto a porch and hallway. Originally the front door opened from the verandah directly into the siting room (National Trust).
Modifications and dates: Substantially intact


Historical notes: Designed for D. Vane. Historical period: 1901-1920.
